Google Product Search
Google Product Search (formerly known as Froogle) is a price comparison service launched by Google Inc. Its interface provides an HTML form
field into which a user can type product queries to return lists of vendors selling a particular product, as well as pricing information.
Searches can be sorted by relevance ('best match') or by price (either ascending or descending). You can also search for items in specific
online stores (assuming they have provided Product Search a data feed).
